Set on the outskirts of Karaikudi, The Bangla is named after the Tamil pronunciation of ‘Bungalow’ and is located 90 kms from Madurai airport and 400 kms from the Chennai International Airport. Formerly the ‘Senjai Bangala’, this hertiage hotel dates back over 75 years to 1910, and was restored to its former glory in 1998. Having officially opened its door in 1999, the hotel is a beautiful blend of old-world charm and modern comfort, and features four-poster beds, traditional Athangudi floors, antique colonial furniture and decor, and capacious verandahs. The Chettiars at The Bangla spoil you with delicious Chettinad food served on traditional banana leaves!

Our favorite hotel - charming ambiance, wonderful food, gracious hosts- that being said, we easily could have passed on Chettinad!

The accommodations were very good, and staff very friendly. However, we thought the service at meals was too much; a little more space/time to our own would have made it better.

Only restaurant with banana leaf dinner (very good); they didn't tell us that the hot water heater had to be turned on for hot water; hotel beautiful with owner in residence and personal contact
